The Art & Science of Indigenous Engineering: A Hands-on Boat Building Activity
This will be a fun, hands-on, family friendly activity that showcases physics and engineering design through a boat building challenge. Participants will collaborate in teams to design and build miniature boats using provided materials. Teams will then compete against each other by testing and racing their boats. A projection screen will show a continuous slideshow featuring types of Indigenous water technologies for guests who prefer to observe the challenge.
February 28 from 5 - 6 pm
Both events at the Gordon Oakes Red Bear Student Centre.
